Kraus + Floris Vanhoof

No Longer Available
Thanks to the Kraak Festival – taking place on 7 March in Aalst, Belgium – New Zealand-based instrumentalist, Kraus, is touring Europe for the first time alongside electronic artist Floris Vanhoof, who for this tour will be performing with four flickering slide projectors and a homemade modular synthesizer.

Kraus

“Fuzz guitars, homemade synths, monolithic drums and bamboo flutes beam in from a parallel universe where the ancient past collides with the far-out future. Leaving his home country for the first time, legendary New Zealand instrumentalist Kraus collapses space and time with a combination of psychedelic noise rock, freakish analogue electronics, and a wide range of exotic weirdness from Renaissance lute ballads to wiry Far-Eastern strings.”

Floris Vanhoof

“For this tour the boundary is between image and light is explored by a hybrid form of 4 flickering slide projectors and a homemade modular synthesizer. In the words of Cezanne: "To show the process of seeing, not just the results."  Persistence of vision is investigated by musical rhythms that are played synchronous or asynchronous with image sequences. By searching for sound waves and extreme photographic enlargements, the illusion is generated that we "enter the head" of the projected portraits.”
